Gower Pensions Management is one of the leading corporate pension scheme providers in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Our corporate pension can be tailored to each individual client, ensuring that your company’s pension saving framework meets its needs.
Our corporate pension has the ability to seek Jersey approval putting a pan-island scheme within your reach. If you have employees in both Guernsey and Jersey, we can arrange for approval to be obtained within the tax regime of both jurisdictions.
Creating a corporate pension scheme gives an employer the opportunity to design and control the way in which the pension is funded, how their employees can join, and what rights they continue to have on contributions that have been funded by the employer.
Secondary Pension Scheme
States of Guernsey are proposing the introduction of a Secondary Pension System. This would be in addition to the existing old age pension arrangement and will require all Employers to enrol their employees into a suitable pension scheme and pay a minimum level of contributions. This new obligation would be similar to the ‘automatic enrolment’ work place pension requirement introduced into the UK in 2008.
It is currently intended that the Secondary Pension System will be applied to almost all Employers within the Bailiwick and most of their employees will be eligible to join. If you are an Employer, you will therefore need to consider the pension benefits you provide your employees to ensure they meet these new requirements.
Gower Pensions Management can help create and launch your suitable corporate pension by meeting with you, finding out what features you need, and providing a solution that delivers them. We can support your HR department in managing your scheme, and we will oversee its running and performance at all times whilst ensuring that it continues to comply with the Secondary Pension System.
Whether you require the added support of our sister company Gower Financial Services Limited to help provide advice to you and your employees, there is no better time to find out how we can help you provide your employees with a compliant, integrated, corporate pension scheme.
Our corporate plan has a choice of investment management options, including the ability for employees to manage their own investments. Online functionality and access to their records via an Android App allows employees to track their pension provisions whenever they choose.
